Another picture of Neptun and Triton (so far my best)

Handpicked 20 frames out of 120.

I tried to keep Neptuns natural color (not over-exposed) and at the same time show Triton (very close)
This image is kept in full resolution (1500 mm focal length)
I used "super L" technique and de-convolution, but no stretching, sharpening etc.

Best seen in full scale.
thanks for watching
